Ohh and the winner is lovely Lianne La Havas.. I’m also a big fan…
This is it right now.
My friends of art publisher DRAW A LINE asked me to shoot a making of video for one of their upcoming prints by Berlin based artist OSIF SEIKSUH. The goal was to show the complexity of creating a Lithography in combination with the amazing aesthetics of the old printing machine at TABORPRESSE Berlin.
I got assisted by my man Martin Wolf who helped me in this 2,5 days shoot with the second camera! I still like to see the heaviness of the machine in combination with the final artwork and I think it will help to understand the whole process of Lithography.
As you may recognized I’m a little bit off since the last weeks. The reason is that I have the opportunity to spend the summer on the beautiful of IBIZA and work on a the biggest project I did so far. Together with my colleague Sylvie and a lovely team around us we walk on the paths of the IBIZA music scene and the developement of the IBIZA club culture since the 70s. On a daily basis we digg deeper and deeper and meet more interesting people from old Hippies in the north to Superstar DJ’s and club owners in the southern parts.
It’s amazing to work under these conditions, exciting to learn so much about the island, see all these special places, meet the most interesting people and of course in the end capture all this on film to show it to the world someday. It’s still a long process and even though we love our daily dip in the evening sea it’s also a lot of work but again and again I realize how glad I am to call this my job.
The picture above shows the CUFF crew in front of their villa in the north of IBIZA. They are great and for me AMIN EDGE & DANCE throw one of the coolest partys at Sankeys every Thursday.
Another Tumblr? Ohhhh yezz! But this one is special. It’s about my own photography only. I don’t know why I didn’t decide to do this earlier next to my snapshot Iphone Travel and pivate tumblrs, but I really already love it! It’s great to scroll through more than 40k pictures in my Lightroom library and find more and more pics I like and present them in this ongoing collage! Make sure to follow me over there and watch out for new pictures on a regular update!
On Saturday we are hosting one floor at Place Magazine Berlin Open Afterparty at Cassiopeia. We are really excited because we decided to go back to our roots and don’t take the dancefloor too serious (okay we actually do). This means we really play whatever we like even it is a little different than usual. So drop by at the party and if you hate our floor you can escape to the LookyLooky / Bassgang or Place floor for some twerk ass dancing. Make sure to follow A MILLION on Facebook for some more updates on our next gigs.
Last week adidas invited me to play at their #mizxflux worldwide launch party in Berlin. since I didn’t had much time for any preparations I played freestyle and took it as a little workout for my next gig. In the end I liked the set and was happy that I accidently recorded it. I heard Pharell who passed by liked it too. HaHa.
My best discovery on this rainy day is Ben Khan’s new 1992 EP. Fuck, how good is this? It totally reminds me on Jai Paul but since Jai does everything but dropping a new release – 21 year old Ben is kicking his ass big time! Def. a boy to watch out for in the future!
I also love the video by New York based duo BRTHR (I’m really getting depressed since they are 21 as well!)! Check out their vimeo for some very fresh stuff to watch..
My latest film for ABOUTNOW comes (again) from New York, where we met Kiernen Costello of aNYthing to take a closer look behind his brand from the Lower East Side. It was kinda hard to shoot the film because everything was organized very last minute and we just had one day to shoot 9 Interviews all over New York. But with the help of Kiernen and the people around him it was kinda fun in the end. I like the result for it’s rough pictures and editing but I would have wished, that we would have had more time to digg a little deeper in the New York topic. Maybe next time than! Make sure to jump over to ABOUTNOW to see more pictures by my man Stefan Haehnel! More BEHIND THE SCENES picture after the jump… Read more…
